SLX Web 7.5.1 - Automated Build Process

Hi,

 

Can the app architect's build process be automated, or called from a batch file. We have a need to do quick/continous builds. If not possible, could we have the building steps that app architect performs on the code.

 

Thanks!

It's installed in the root of the SalesLogix install folder.  It's a command line utility that you can run with no parameters to get help.

Re: SLX Web 7.5.1 - Automated Build Process

Hi Jason,

This is from the developertips.chm file - located under C:\Program Files\SalesLogix\Help

 

ModelUtility.exe

ModelUtility.exe automates command-line builds of the Sage.Entity.Interfaces.dll and the 'Web classes' of the associated implementation assemblies such as Sage.SalesLogix.Entities.dll. For information on the arguments of this utility, type the utility name at a command line prompt in the directory ..\Program Files\SalesLogix on the Administrative Workstation.

The following table describes the most common ModelUtility.exe usage scenarios:

 

Usage Scenario

Command-line options

Build the Sage.Entity.Interfaces.dll using an exported model from the c:\projects\mycustomermodel to the c:\temp output folder.

C:\>modelutility
--model:c:\projects\mycustomermodel
--type:Interfaces --output:c:\temp

Build the interfaces and implementation assemblies using the same folders.

C:\>modelutility
--model:c:\projects\mycustomermodel
--type:Interfaces,WebClasses --output:c:\temp

Hey Emma,

 

The full deployment/build utility is "PortalDeploymentUtility.exe". I looked in the folders and could not see that it had been included (was a internal tool). I will inquire to its availability. I do not know if its been fully tested for public consumption at this time.
